Hook a Duck Game


We went to a summer fair last month, and Ethan absolutely loved playing the hook a duck game.  He's been asking to play it ever since, so I decided that we could play hook a duck at home!  I just bought a fishing set and some plastic ducks to go with our builders tray (a paddling pool would work as well) and we were ready to go!  

Ethan was so excited!  It takes quite a lot of skill and coordination to be able to hold the fishing rod and get the hook in the right place to pick up the fish.  Ethan did get frustrated a few times and I had to help him, but eventually he got the hang of it and persevered.  The ducks didn't have hooks on them, but Ethan was in a hurry to play, so I quickly used tape and paper to make loops at the top of each duck.  I was planning on buying some plastic hooks, but actually my quick solution worked just fine.  Ethan had fun playing hook a duck (and some fish!) for ages, and he asks to play it again and again, it's one of our go to games when we're short on time now, it's fantastic!
